Paschal was born in Vermont (probably Richford) in 1810, the son of Roger Wright and Selinda Wilson, originally of Lebanon, Connecticut. His family had moved to northern Vermont from Hartford, Vt. sometime between 1800 and 1820.

Paschal married his first wife Anna (or Hannah) Bickford in Vermont in about 1835.

Paschal and Anna had 8 or more children, including the following[1][2]:

  1. Emily b. 1843; m. Alvin Stewart Chase, Sr., 8 Mar. 1863; d. 27 Oct. 1926
  2. William b. 1845
  3. Elias b. 1847
  4. Nathaniel b. 1849
  5. Erastus b. 1851
  6. Almira b. 23 Feb. 1853; m1. William Arpin; m2. Luke Loverin; d. 26 Dec. 1920
  7. Elvira b. 1853
  8. Anna Selinda b. 30 May 1855

In the years after Anna's death of 28 Feb 1857, Paschal married again, this time in Richford on 14 May 1863 to Hannah Rowe (or Munroe)[3].

He passed away in 1880 at the age of 69 years and 11 months[4].
